So When Does Kermit The Frog Marry Fozzie Bear?


Via Townhall comes the news that the Muppets aren’t going to feature an episode where Miss Piggy chops someone in the face for stealing her delicious Chick Fil-A sandwich.

“The Jim Henson Company has celebrated and embraced diversity and inclusiveness for over fifty years and we have notified Chick-Fil-A that we do not wish to partner with them on any future endeavors,” the company said in a statement posted on their official Facebook page.

The Henson company, named after the creator of lovable characters like Kermit the Frog and Miss Piggy, supplied their Creature Shop Muppet toys to Chick-Fil-A for children’s meal packages but decided to sever ties after recent statements by the fast-food chain’s Chief Executive Dan Cathy.

Cathy told the Baptist Press in a recent interview the company supported the “traditional family,” and “the biblical definition of the family unit.”

If Jim Henson wants to have Kermit marry Fozzie Bear in a ceremony presided over by Beaker in assless chaps, far be it from me to criticize that. Actually, come to think of it, I would criticize the hell out of that. But for now, let me just note that it’s sad that Jim Henson doesn’t think the Muppets should be associated with Chick-Fil-A because it’s taken a pro-Christian, pro-family stand. Christians should keep that in mind before they allow their children to be exposed to the Muppets.
